Kenda presenting all-season range at The Tire Cologne
Kenda Tires is keen to replicate the success it has enjoyed with its car tyre business in North America over the last decade in European markets, and last year it introduced its first passenger car tyre specifically designed for the region, the Kenda Emera A1. This was followed by the Wintergen 2 winter tyre and Komendo Winter KR500 van tyre. The Taiwanese tyre maker is bringing its latest made-for-Europe product to The Tire Cologne, the Kenda Kenetica 4S all-season tyre.
This first Kenda all-season tyre for the European market was specifically developed for conditions encountered in the region. The Kenetica 4S will be launched in the second half of 2018 and initially available in 28 dimensions. Kenda intends to extend the range next year and will also introduce an all-season SUV tyre.
Alongside this new addition to the range, at The Tire Cologne Kenda will present new sizes in the existing Emera A1 and Wintergen 2 product lines. Planned extensions to the Kenda Emera A1 (KR41) range include further dimensions in the 16- to 19-inch size bracket; these should be with us by the second half of 2019 and bring the total range up to 50 dimensions. For the Wintergen 2 (KR501), 23 new sizes, including eight for 18- and 19-inch rims, will be introduced for winter 2018/19. In total, 59 sizes will be available.
Kenda can be found at The Tire Cologne in Hall 6, Stand C-020.
